Downtown Las Vegas Gets a High-Flying Zipline

Posted Tuesday, October 26, 2010 by in Las Vegas, Things to Do. 13 Comments.

Thrill-seekers are drooling over a new zipline attraction under the light-studded canopy of the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas.

The massive zipline scaffolding is an impressive feat of engineering, and somewhat daunting for those of us who like to remain a bit more, well, grounded. We snagged some video during a visit a night or two ago, and thought we’d share.

The new feature seems to be getting some great reviews. In the video, you can distinctly hear a Fremont Street Experience reveler say, “That’s awesome.” His companion replies, “Dude, is that not awesome?” What more do you need to know?

The zipline runs 800 feet down the length of “Glitter Gulch,” close to 70 feet above the hard, hard, unforgiving ground. Riders can enjoy a “controlled plummet” of close to 25 miles per hour, and can adjust their velocity based on body position.

The zipline attraction is priced at $20 ($15 to ride again) after 6:00 p.m. and $15 ($10 for a re-ride) during the day.

The company hosting the zipline ride, Greenheart, is looking to make the attraction a permanent part of the Fremont Street Experience, and hopes to double the length of the line.

Line up, adrenaline junkies! There are always new things to do in Las Vegas.
